Step By Step  

Hamburger Helper + Scotch = Whaaa?!

As prepared by NY Barfly,

Father’s Day should be special, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be a lot of work.


Keep things simple but impress your father by cooking up a dinner with Hamburger Helper and breaking out a bottle of scotch. Below, we offer some pairing suggestions for different flavors of Hamburger Helper–whether it’s a straight dram or a scotch cocktail, these easy options will make that Father’s Day dinner even tastier.

Penicillin Scotch Cocktail with Asian Helpers


If you’re looking to give your meal a little Asian flair with a Helper like Mongolian-Style Beef or Chicken Fried Rice, serve it with a classic scotch cocktail that incorporates a little ginger liqueur, which will go nicely with those Asian flavors.

The Penicillin cocktail uses two ounces of your favorite scotch (Jonnie Walker Black is a good option), a half ounce of a really smoky scotch like Laphroaig, the juice from half of lemon and a half ounce of a ginger liqueur like Domaine de Canton. Mix that up and pour it over a couple of ice cubes and you’re set. If you want to be really fancy, garnish your drink with some candied ginger.

Hamburger Helper & Scotch Pairing


Creamy Stroganoff with J&B Scotch


When you’re cooking up a dish using the classic Stroganoff variety, you’re going to need something that pairs with that creamy, white sauce. J&B Rare is a moderately priced label with a lighter bite than many Scotch whisky on the market. The middle-of-the-road, dry flavor will go nicely with this dinner. Like the Jonnie Walker, you can drink this one straight up with a few cubes of ice.

Old Fashioned Italian Favorites


Say dad wants to keep things inspired by Italy on his special day with a Hamburger Helper flavor like Lasagna or Spaghetti. Pair these tomato-infused flavors with a classic old fashioned scotch cocktail with some fruit to go well with those Italian herbs and spices. To make this basic drink, put some cherries and oranges in a glass and mash them up with a muddler. Then, mix in three ounces of your favorite scotch label (preferably one that’s not too fruity) and throw a bit of sugar in for good measure. Shake it up, pour it over some fresh ice cubes, and serve.

Hamburger Helper & Scotch


Cheeseburger Macaroni with Johnnie Walker Black


If you’re going to cook up a meal using a classic version of Hamburger Helper, you should pair it with one of the most classic scotch labels available: Johnnie Walker Black. JW Black is affordable and not too smoky–there are actually sweet hints of caramel and maple syrup that go well with the cheesy mix. Just pour yourself a glass, throw a few ice cubes in and you’re all set.
